Happy, Happy, Happy - AYOS

The Vintage Schnibbles pattern for June was Dulcinea. I am joining the monthly Parade of Schnibbles, sponsored by Sinta of Pink Pincushion and Sherri of A Quilting Life.

I ran a little behind this month, so I am still working on the border. I varied the pattern a bit, adding sashing to provide a little definition between the pinwheels, but I'm not sure I like the result. After I uploaded the photo of the quilt, I noticed I forgot to sash the outsides of the outer blocks. Oh well, I do love my seam ripper.

Moda's Avalon by Fig Tree was my chosen fabric, along with a piece of yardage from P&B Textile's Apple Cider collection for the background and a navy print for the sashing.


I love the colors in Avalon - for me they are happy colors. And every time I hear the word "happy", I am reminded of Duck Dynasty patriarch Phil saying "Happy, happy, happy". Perfect quilt name.

I'll be back with a final post after it's complete!

  1. I like the sashing, but it may be a bit too dark.

    1. Thanks for the feedback, Lisa - I think I agree with you. ;) However, last night I went ahead and put it all the way around, so I will probably proceed with it.

  3. I love the Avalon fabric you chose. I didn't notice the sashing was missing from the outside until you said something. Isn't that funny - how we don't "see" things until we take a picture of them. I've noticed that lately myself on a quilt block I was doing. When I took the picture and uploaded it to the computer, I saw the error that I couldn't see by just looking at it.

    I agree with Lisa that your sashing is a little dark however I think I would probably change my mind when I see it with the dark sashing all the way around.

    I love the Dulcinea block. Very pretty.
    Also, thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I love reading them and they are very uplifting for me.

    1. I'm trying to ease up on myself about errors, but it's hard not to focus on them! I'll do a post when I finish, which I hope is in the next couple days.

      I enjoy your comments too. :)

  5. I really like the way the sashing look! You are right, however - it needs the final frame of sashing before the border. The colors are great too. Go ahead and submit it for next month's parade - I think a few others have been posted that have been for the previous month.

    1. Thanks Patti! I did finish the quilt top and the back and plan to sandwich it tomorrow. Then I'll need your hand quilting to finish. ;)
